There are no rules. It’s YOUR blog. But if would be nice if you linked back to me, and maybe the person who tagged you too. Share the love folks.
The Sanderson Sisters
A great trilogy.
Dawlyn: I only actually ever finished maybe 3 trilogies? So I’ll have The Hunger Games by: Suzanne Collins.
Krista: The Trylle Trilogy by: Amanda Hocking. I loved this trilogy!
A book with a truly evil female villain.
Dawlyn: I’m gonna have to go with Katie’s answer on this one and say Umbridge. *shudders*
Krista: I’m going to go with Amarantha from A Court of Thorns and Roses by: Sarah J. Mass. She is terrifying!
A book that uncannily attracts children.
Dawlyn: All tiny humans love Dr. Seuss!!
Krista: Harry Potter!!
A book that is just plain silly.
Dawlyn: Any of the Junie B. Jones books!
Krista: All of the Captain Underpants books by Dav Pilkey are pretty silly!
A book that is trying really hard to be cool, but doesn’t always succeed.
Dawlyn: The first thing that comes to mind is The F-It List by: Julie Halpner. This book was definitely trying way to hard.
Krista: I honestly can’t think of anything.
A book that isn’t afraid to tell it like it is.
Dawlyn: The Hate U Give by: Angie Thomas. This book is unflinchingly honest about topics that are so relevant to what’s going on in the U.S. today.
Krista: The Female of the Species by: Mindy McGinnis. This book brings attention to rape culture. Unfortunately, this isn’t talked about enough. This is definitely an important read as Mindy McGinnis does tell it like it is, for example: “But boys will be boys, our favorite phrase that excuses so many things, while the only thing we have for the opposite gender is women, said with disdain and punctuated with an eye roll” (The Female of the Species).
A book series that just won’t die.
Dawlyn: I don’t have one for this one.
Krista: Harry Potter will never die, as it should be!
A book with a character that’s dumb as a rock.
Dawlyn: I don’t have one for this one either.
Krista: The King of Hearts from Heartless by: Marissa Meyer. I felt bad for the king, but he was just so clueless all the time!
The Black Flame Candle
A book or series you wish you could resurrect.
Dawlyn: The Giver by: Lowis Lowry. Not enough people have read this gem!
Krista: I’m gonna go with a genre on this one and say dystopians because I hear/read a lot of people say they are so done with dystopian novels because that time has passed, and I love dystopian books! There are still so many I haven’t read yet, and I can’t wait to get to them all!
Headless Billy Butcherson
A book that’s not so bad as people make it out to be.
Dawlyn: I recently finished reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by: John Tiffany and though I definitely had some issues with it, it wasn’t as bad as people made it out to be. Overall, I really enjoyed it!
Krista: The first book that comes to mind is Caraval by: Stephanie Garber. I have seen a lot of negative reviews about this book, but I loved it! Aside from the ending being a little info dumpy, I really enjoyed the story!
Winifred Sanderson’s Spell Book
A book with a mind of its own
Dawlyn: Dark Inside By: Jeyn Roberts. I started this book back in highschool but never finished it. I think I put it down because I didn’t like the writing style at the time, but I would like to try it again at some point. The one thing I remember about it is that it was very different from anything I’d ever read at the time and it definitely had a mind of its own.
Krista: I’m gonna go with Illuminae by: Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. This book had so many twists and turns. I would definitely say it had a mind of it’s own.
A book with a cameo.
Dawlyn and Krista: All of Sarah Dessen’s books. Each book has a cameo of a character/s from one of her previous books. We’ve always loved this about her books!
